‘A thrilling and hugely entertaining adventure story’ – David Walliams

Adventures on Trains is a major mystery series from bestselling authors M.G. Leonard and Sam Sedgman. First stop is The Highland Falcon Thief, a breathless train journey full of deceptions, puzzles and clues to solve. Beautifully illustrated by Elisa Paganelli.

Harrison Beck and his Uncle Nat are enjoying the final journey of the Highland Falcon, Britain’s most famous steam train. But when a precious jewel goes missing, Harrison and his new friend Lenny find themselves at the centre of the investigation. Can they solve the mystery and catch the culprit before they reach the end of the line?

Hear whispers in the dining car, find notes in the library, and unknown passengers among the luggage as you help Harrison to solve the mystery aboard one of the world’s grandest trains.

Join Hal and Uncle Nat on the next stops in this thrilling series, Kidnap on the California Comet, Murder on the Safari Star and Danger at Dead Man’s Pass.

    Best read

    I bought this book for my Niece , she absolutely loved it . She can't stop talking about how good it was and is so excited about the new book being released in September. Brilliant to find a book that children want to read and get so much enjoyment from, this book does exactly that.
